How rare is this, a K-code burger with the lot! Factory K-code XY Fairmont GS in Teal Glow running the all matching numbers 351 Cleveland D block motor with added 4V dot heads, combined with a factory top loader 4 speed manual gearbox and 9" LSD diff. And if that's not a rare enough combo - how about the factory WHITE trim. We don't think you've seen too many XY Fairmonts like this one. In fact this is a one off order very special K Code Fairmont. Obviously ordered by someone who wanted the power of the big 351, the sportiness of the top loader gearbox and the GS Rally Pack, and had the exquisite good taste to choose this stunning colour combo.
In the long term ownership of the current owner for over 40 years (Yes since 1979), this GS Fairmont has been upgraded to a GT Replica with GT shaker, GT striping, 5 slot rims and was treated to a full restoration by it's current owner in 2007. The car was bare metaled and repainted again in stunning factory acrylic Teal Glow. New reflective orange GT stripes were placed down her flanks. The white interior was treated to a freshen up including a re-trim to the seats, restoration of the gauges and refinishing of the original GS steering wheel.
The matching numbers 351 Cleveland has been rebuilt with a mild cam, 4V heads, 650 vac sec Demon carby, Edelbrock 4V Performer manifold, electronic ignition and Pacemaker extractors through to a new standard GT exhaust. The top loader and 3.0:1 9 inch diff have been reconditioned. Brakes, steering, suspension and wiring loom have also been rebuilt. And the result, we think you'll agree, is one smart looking unit. You get the drift, this is one very special 'special order' XY.
The only dilemma for the new owner is what to do with this car!?! Leave it as a tough GT Replica with K code credentials under the skin; or perhaps put it back to the original GS Fairmont specifications. Either way, you've got a winner!
